that? >> here is the back. 95 percent of the consumers live outside the united states. american companies need to tap those consumers and send them u.s. products. we have to find ways to encourage that kind of trade. agreements that give us access to consumers outside of the united states are beneficial for creating jobs back here in the u.s. i look at all of the free trade agreements that have been negotiated and the ones that are pending approval as ways to stimulate job growth. there have been studies done, and there are estimates, but the conservative estimates, and president obama himself i use that number is that the agreement could generate 75,000 new jobs. those are the kinds of numbers you want to be generating. that is a conservative estimate. this agreement, i know, will create more jobs, because there is a lot of opportunities in the market that we have not been able to tap yet because of the tariff and barriers. $38 billion and exports in 2010. it is the seventh largest export market for us. can you imagine how much more that market could be? >> if the prices came d

on here in the united states and in canada, our neighbor. mr. folk, i would ask you in a speech read you for your service as a marina as well, how do you assess the effectiveness of the fbi and the doj's efforts to support al-shabaab's ongoing recruitment of muslim americans around the united states? >> thank you, congressman. i think we can look at a couple different factors to bite us in that first i believe that the fbi and the doj recognize the threat and move quickly to counter it. i believe that there is certainly an ongoing need to take care to focus on any groups that are recruiting people to fight on behalf of a terrorist organization and i believe al-shabaab is currently represents an active group in that regard, so i think the efforts need to be ongoing and we are going to need to remain vigilant to ensure that they are not recruiting. and i think that if you want to look at whether or not we have managed to stop this problem we can look at the fact that as of february, 2008 the state department designated al-shabaab a foreign terrorist organization. since that time additional

the united states faces in threes important countries. we're doing this a little bit differently today and one of the differences is that both of our nominees on the first panel were nominated last year to serve on these positions. i think i chaired one of those nomination hearings last year. but both were considered and approved by the senate foreign relations committee and both were held up on the senate floor and was not confirmed by the full senate. seeing the importance of having an ambassador in these critical countries, the president chose to recess appoint both ambassador ric -- the two men have been serving as ambassadors in prague and akara over the past seven months. a recessed appointment by the president lasts for only one calendar year so these two men have been renominated and the committee will reconsider their nominations. i intend to support their nominations once again. since both men have been serving on these rools we will hear about the plans they've already seen. welcome back and thank you for going through the nomination process again and take on these responsib
